Hannah submitted this post and wow am I glad she shared her link! She writes in her blog that her friend send this bag to her from Egypt. She says, “The tag says it’s from a fair trade association for selling handicrafts, and this one was made by a group of North Sinai Bedouin women. The tag says “Each design and color combination holds social and/or cultural meaning” but totally fails to say what meaning that is. Just enough information to be frustratingly vague. … It does mention that the design is inspired by patterns used to decorate traditional Bedouin wedding galabeyas (a special type of traditional dress).”
I hope Hannah will keep us updated if she finds out more about the bag!
